Eco-brokers

By: Branden Schroeder

There is no shock in saying that the current state of our planet from an ecological basis is worrying. Summers are getting hotter, winters are getting colder and the planet seems to be moving more into extremes of weather with every passing year. It is only recently that society seems to be really getting on board with plans to improve the world's condition and to this end there is a new designation available for real estate professionals, the Eco-Broker. Following the lead of many different groups and societies that not only alerted the general public to the current state of affairs but have brought forth some of the new technology and ideas that could stand to save our home, Eco-Brokers are a new breed of brokers who are educated and knowledgeable about the possibilities that home owners have in installing and purchasing eco-friendly technology for homes.



Now more than ever the environment is becoming a real concern. One thing that has damaged the environment significantly is our dependence on forms of energy that are either non-renewable or environmentally damaging. This can caused a real surge of research and development of appliances and gadgetry for the home that does not exact such a high toll on our environment. From energy efficient appliances to complete green design for homes, Eco-Brokers are at the forefront of education and implementation of these ideas. There are a huge number of new technologies that one can employ to make a home more friendly on the environment. Something as simplistic and ensuring that the home is properly sealed can save an incredible amount in heating and cooling bills or something as extreme as a complete solar power system can almost nullify the energy drain of a home.

There is a real move towards an eco-friendly society and we as a society should hope that it is not too late. Humanity has taken a real toll on the planet and it is something that we can see on a daily basis from the increased number of storms to the rising heat and the melting of the polar icecaps. The planet is clearly sending out a message that we need to make some changes to the way that we live our lives. Eco-Brokers are brining this change to the front lines of the real estate industry. If we are to make these changes then they need to start at home with individuals before they can become a greater part of society. After all without our planet, what do we have?
